So, yeah. THAT'S a rather significant bit of Character backstory that I just went and dropped on you all with no fanfare whatsoever. And remember, the parts outside of Ichabod's narration are canon, so this is a "real" thing now.

Here's the deal, I'd actually been working on a future storyline that would have Astrid & Disonar cross paths with the Hector Family, and this bit of shared history was going to be revealed more naturally there. Unfortunately, that story didn't work out, so I was left with this one idea I really liked but no obvious way of incorporating it into any other plot lines. But then Christmas came along with it's magical bending of narrative structure, and I figured I could go ahead and get that little detail out in the open this way! IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

Oh, and fun Me-making-dumb-mistakes-trivia time: Astrid was originally supposed to be threatening to go public with details concerning the end ofStilez vs. Christmas, like, some kind of insurance laws that they were technically breaking bu nobody else had had the heart to call them out on... buuuuuut then I remembered that Astrid's supposed to be in her early teens here, which would require both Stilez AND Tax to somehow be OLDER than her. See, this is why I try so hard to not give specific dates for anything in this comic. If I can nearly miss something that stupidly obvious, there's NO WAY I'd be able to keep little things like what day something happened on straight.

OH! And hopefully there'll be a fresh Voting Incentive up by the time this page goes live, and it'll be a non-Christmas one for those of you already sick of Santa hats.

...child Astrid seems alot like Layla. And you mean that those aren't just, possibly partially holographic, fat suits?

That's probably the future equivalent of fake beards and a pillow under the shirt: the cheapo guys as the mall might do it, but the REAL, PROFESSIONAL SANTAS actually live the part.

Future Santas are like the guy in the Santa Clause movie, except instead of magic, it's bioengineered mad science that causes them to gain 150 lbs and grow white facial hair every december
